-sex marriage. the first one is about the defense of marriage act, windsor against the united states. edith windsor and her partner were married in toronto, canada in 2007. spire died in 2009 in new york at a time when new york recognized same-sex marriages that had been performed outside the side. when spire died windsor was required to pay $363,000 in federal estate taxes on her inheritance that she would not have had to pay if federal law had given their relationship the same status that opposite sex marriages get, so a pretty clean case here, an even the obama administration has already said it doesn't think the constitutionality of the defense of marriage act can withstand a legal attack. >>> the second case the court decided to take on is proposition 8, the california ballot initiative adding a state constitutional amendment in 2008 that said only marriage between a man or woman is valid or recognized in california. it overturned a court ruling that said same-sex couples have a right to marry. the cases are likely to be heard in march and decided some time in june. randi? >> joe johns
. the justices will also review a provision of the federal "defense of marriage act" or doma that deprives legally married gay couples of federal benefits that are available to heterosexual couples. same-sex marriage is legal or will be soon in nine states and the district of columbia. but 31 states have amended their constitutions to bar gay unions. here with us to explain today's development, and where it could lead, is marcia coyle of "the national law journal." welcome back, marcia. >> thanks, marg wet. >> warner: so is it fair to say first of all that the court's decision to hear these first two cases in itself a momentous decision? >> absolutely. a number of gay rights organizations, particularly as if relates to the federal defense of marriage act have been working towards that point. and yes, whatever the court says, if it reaches the merits of these cases will be extremely important. >> warner: let's take them one by one, prop 8 in california first. remind us briefly of how what started out as a state issue ended am in the supreme court. >> the california supreme court a number of
today. >> important social issues. >> the defense of marriage act. >> on the table for the supreme court. >> will the court be ahead of where the public is? >> what a question. what a story. >> good evening. i'm alex wagner in for lawrence o'donnell. will the republicans be able to face reality before we go over the fiscal curb? with just 24 days to go, it fell to chris wallace to try to get through to the fox news crowd. >> one side is going to have to give, you know. any bet on which side it's likely to be? >> on that issue, i think that the republicans are going to have to give. i mean, it was key issue in the election. it's unsustainable for boehner and the republicans to be in a position where they are blocking a tax cut for 98% of americans because they want to protect the tax rates of the top 2%. that may be right or wrong on its merits. but politically, it seems pretty clear. and you see more and more conservatives and republican office holders who are caving on that. >> later that morning, house speaker john boehner updated reporters on the negotiations with president obama. >>
's been damaged by people -- by all of these hits she's had to endure without having the full defense that you would have if you were a nominee? plus, the fact that this would open a whole benghazi investigation. >> as you know, andrea, there is a commission that's reporting soon to the secretary of state on benghazi, but, as you know, once a nominee is named, you basically go into a very silent period, so if either ambassador rice or senator kerry were nominated, they would have to go into a very quiet period, and until the actual hearing took place, which probably wouldn't take place in january anyway, there would be no comment, no visibility by either one of them. i don't think that's so much of an issue because neither one of them would be out there doing some defense of themselves or some arguments against them. it would allow the chattering class to let loose once either one of them is nominated with the pluses and minuses of either one of them, but as far as their own individual involvement, they wouldn't be able to be visible to the actual hearing anyways. >> and speaking of t
it and in addition, to the federal defense of marriage act. two different things. that act restricts federal benefits gay couples can get by defining marriage as something that exists between a man and a woman. 38 states have laws or amendments that outlaw gay marriage. north carolina the most recent state to prohibit it it but nine states, and the district of columbia have already legalized gay marriage or in the process of doing so now. this has been one of the most charged social issues in the marriage. polls indicate people support gay marriage. now we know within a matter of months the supreme court could help settle it once and for all. molly henneberg on fox top story live for us in washington this evening. molly, explain more cases about the justices are going to hear. >> the supreme court had seven same sex marriage cases in front of it and selected these two. windsor vs. the u.s. is the defense of marriage case or dome that case. specifically looking at part of the law that gives federal benefits such as tax breaks to heterosexual married couples, not to same-sex married couples. is that eq
for abortion advocates. the home school legal defense association rallied parents claiming it was a threat to home schooling in the united states. again, just claims. no actual facts. here's democratic senator chris coons of delaware on the last home school claim. >> they have succeeded in scaring the parents who home schooled their children all over this country. my own office has gotten dozens of calls and letters demanding that i vote against this convention as a matter of international law and as a matter of u.s. law. this convention does nothing. does nothing to change the home schooling of children in america. >> he gave that speech on the senate floor just before the vote. senator mike lee of utah was 1 of the 38 republicans who voted against the u.n. treaty. he agreed to talk us to tonight. he's a constitutional lawyer, was a law clerk for justice alito. we spoke a short time ago. senator, you said this treaty will somehow change u.s. law or could change u.s. law. former republican attorney general dick thornburgh who helped negotiate this treaty on behalf of president george bush
arguments, one involves the constitutionality of the defense of marriage act which denies federal benefits to same sex spouses. the case was brought by 83-year-old edith windsor who was required to pay hundreds of thousands in estate taxes when her long-time partner died. an appeals court ruled that violated the constitution's equal protection clause. the supreme court will look into proposition 8. striking it down could have an immediate impact on gay spouses denied benefits. casey wayan introduces us to a california couple with a lot riding on the issue. >> reporter: november 1 was a big day. did you think four years later you would be fighting a legal battle for the rights that other married couples enjoy? >> on that particular day it wasn't on our minds. >> reporter: three days later californians voted to outlaw future marriages. their union is recognized by the state, but not by the federal government tracy served as a 12-year highly decorated army veteran. >> especially after the repeal of don't ask, don't tell, there are other veterans that are going to be facing this same issue. >>
on same-sex marriage. hearing cases on the defense of marriage act and california's proposition 8. much more on that in a moment, and the busy week ends with some good news for america's workers and the president. a little christmas cheer some early. the u.s. economy generating a stronger than expected 146,000 new jobs in november helping trim the jobless rate to 7.7%. a four-year low. happy holidays, right? not if you're john boehner. >> this isn't a progress report because there is no progress to report. the president has adopted a deliberate strategy to slow walk our economy right to the edge of the fiscal cliff. >> yes, indeed, it's like a visit from the ghost of christmas past, casual friday edition. another positive month of jobs numbers, another glum assessment by bah humbug boehner. he couldn't even be bothered to put on a holiday tie to take up the case of mr. scrooge and the top 2%. as nancy pelosi asked, why, oh, why is congress on another recess when they could be extending tax breaks for the middle class just in time for christmas? >> this is a moment of truth, the clock is
court took has to do with the defense of marriage act signed by bill clinton shamefully in 1996, which defines marriage under federal law as one man/one woman. but since then, there has been an amazing turnaround in public attitude and public acceptance of same-sex marriage. remember just a few years ago, there were, like 10 or 11 constitutional amendments up in the same year inch 10 or 11 states put on there by right-wingers who were using that as a way of deriving conservative -- driving conservatives to the polls. it was when george bush first ran, they could get the him elected overall gore or whatever. but did he have a huge success for the same-sachsey -- anti-same-sex marriage people. there are nine states which allow recognized same-sex marriage, massachusetts, iowa, vermont, new york, connecticut, new hampshire. i think hawaii is on that list too. one, two, three, four, five. and the district of columbia plus the state of this year just added, maryland and washington plus, remember the president of the united states himself, who used
to consider overturning both the federal defense of marriage act and state bans on gay marriage next year. nine states and the district of columbia have already legalized same sex marriage, most recently maryland, maine and washington. a recent gallup poll shows a majority of americans for the first time support gay marriage. back in 1996, just a quarter of the country did. today, 53% as you see support it. 46% are opposed. let me bring in executive director of log cabin republicans, r. clark cooper, and democratic strategist and former dnc advisor to the obama '08 campaign, jamal simmons. gentlemen, good morning. >> good morning. >> opposition to gay marriage has obviously softened, even among conservatives. here's what george will had to say about the issue. >> this decision by the supreme court came 31 days after an election day in which three states for the first time endorsed same sex marriage. they could see it's now safe to look at this because there is something like an emerging consensus. quite riliterally, the oppositi to gay marriage is dying. >> here's what he's talking about.
that is are aware, are very quick to point out that at this point they have absolutely no defense whatsoever against that type of weaponry. ever since this conflict began, the civilian population has been incapable of protecting itself against bullets and bombs. there most certainly is no defense whatsoever should the regime decide to deploy chemical weapons. >> are they afraid of that possibility? do they talk about that, the possibility of their own government turning on them like that and unleashing these type of weapons? >> they most certainly do, suzanne. especially obviously the conversation amongst those that are aware of it. they do feel that this is a regime that has absolutely no mercy whatsoever, and the greater the tranglehold on regime forces grows, the greater the likelihood that the assad government could, in fact, choose to take this kind of drastic measure against its own population. people have no doubt in their minds about the lengths to which this government -- the assad government will go to stay in power. one rebel commander, we were speaking to yesterday, was saying if you loo
, the defense of marriage act. this administration will not defend it in the courts. if that gets struck down, what does that say to cases around the country where people have been allowed to marry in the same gender? chad, on that. what happens it doma gets struck down by the court, 5-4 or whatever? >> the ridiculously named defense of marriage act would be gone obviously. >> what would it mean to a gay person who is married? >> that would mean that couples who are married in those states as well as the district of columbia, their marriages would be recognized by the federal government. now, it would mean we still have a lot of work to do, and depending on how they rule in the prop 8 case, we would still need other states to move forward with the right to marry. >> right. >> thank you. it's an honor to have you on and your organization. elizabeth birch, we are in a much bigger studio. >>> the republican establishment is at war with its crazy wing. they say they lost the election because ideologues pulled mitt romney foo far to the right. that sounds reasonable. wrong says the right wing. we

the federal defense of marriage act, or d doma, and another involving california's proposition 8, banning same-sex marriages in that state. for analysis into these historic cases, what's going to be a historic hearing, i want to bring in kinji yoshityoshito, professor of constitutional law at new york city. great to see you. >> good to see you. >> put prop 8 aside for a second. do you believe that the supreme court will strike down doma. this is what what you've said. walk me through your thinking on that one. >> y bet. so doma is a really narrow challenge insofar as what the statute does is it says for federal purposes marriages are defined between one man and one woman. so i think it might be best to clarify this by example. so you take edie windsor, a plaintiff coming out of new york who's going to be the plaintiff in this case. she was with another woman for 40 years. they got married in 2007. when her partner passed away, her wife passed away, for state purposes, in the eyes of new york state, she was next of kin. so her remains were released to edie. but for federal purposes, they were c
, and -- >> let's cut this in two. there's to questions here. one is doma, the defense of marriage act. this administration will not defend it in the courts. if that gets struck down, what does that say to cases around the country where people have been allowed to marry in the same gender? chad, on that. what happens it doma gets struck down by the court, 5-4 or whatever? >> the ridiculously named defense of marriage act would be gone obviously. >> what would it mean to a gay person who is married? >> that would mean that couples who are married in those states as well as the district of columbia, their marriages would be recognized by the federal government. now, it would mean we still have a lot of work to do and depending on how they rule in the prop 8 case, we would still need other states to move forward with the right to marry. >> right. >> but social security, if you were in california, for example, and the appellate court is still upholing that prop 8 or overruling it, if you're in a state, for example, iowa, new york, massachusetts, connecticut, maryland, d.c., maine, vermont,

off the top of the show indicates, 59% oppose significant cuts to defense but 75% favor across the board spending cuts. so where are you and other colleagues willing to start with those spending cuts? i mean, what are democrats willing to put on the table specifically? >> well, first of all, i've spoken to many republicans in the house. i'm one of the most liberal democratic members of the house, but i have great relationships with the republicans. all of us want to resolve this crisis. we want to come to an agreement. so i believe that we will find a way to negotiate this. we also look at, in addition to cutting in areas of pentagon spending such as maintaining nuclear weapons, we have more than enough nuclear weapons to blow up this world many times over again, we can eliminate and save a lot of money in that end with pentagon spending. but also we need to reform our tax code. reform it in a way that closes those loopholes that encourage companies to send their jobs overseas, but rather provide incentives to bring those jobs back home. that's another reason why the president'

-sex marriage case. justices agreed to hear arguments about proposition 8 and the defense of marriage act. proposition 8 is the 2008 ballot measure that made same-sex marriage illegal in the state of california. residents voted 52-48 to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry. the 9th court of appeals struck down proposition 8 on the basis it stripped individuals of rights previously granted when same-sex marriages were permitted in the state. opponents of same-sex marriage appealed the ruling to the supreme court which will now review the decision. the court will also take up the defensive marriage act case which challenges a section of the law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman for the purposes of receiving federal benefits. this mean the highest court now has the opportunity to rule on whether gay americans have the same constitutional right to marry as hetero sexual americans. the court's decision to hear these cases comes as a series of election victories for same-sex marriage. last month washington, maine, maryland became the first states to approve same-sex
will. so does washington, d.c. the court also agreed to hear a challenge to the federal defense of marriage act. it defines marriage as "only a legal union between one man and one woman." the law had a big effect on edie windsor of new york who married tea spire in 2007. when spire died the irs sent a tax bill for $300,000 because it did not consider them to be married. >> the injustice. i couldn't believe they were making a stranger of this person i lived with and loveded for 43 something years. >> under that law, same sex couples who are legally married are denied about 1,000 federal benefits that other married couples get. after first supporting the defense of marriage act, the obama administration concluded last year that it violates the constitution. >> we cannot defend the federal government poking its nose into what states are doing and putting the thumb on the scale against same sex companies. >> reporter: house republicans are now taking up the law's legal defense. supporters say it helps preserve traditional marriage. >> unions of two men and two women are not the same

. as widely expected they agreed to take up a challenge to the federal defense of marriage act, which is the federal law that says the federal government cannot recognize same-sex marriages even in the states where they're legal. but and i think this is the surprising part the justices also aagreed to take up a challenge to california's proposition 8, which could either be a very narrow decision about california only or the justices could take up the basic question about whether states can deny same sex couples the ability to get married. these cases won't be argued until probably march, but i think it's very surprising. this is a huge action by the supreme court today wading fully into the issue of same-sex marriage. so it's going to mean that this will be an absolute blockbuster term. >> pete, can you talk a little bit about what it means to take two cases in this way at the same time? we know from the aca decision that justice roberts cares deeply about his legacy and the legacy of the court. how do we read that into this discussion? is he going to want to be part of a decision str

to the defense of marriage act passed under president clinton that defined marriage between a man and woman for the purposes of federal law. the question is why now. why did the supreme court choose this moment? nine states and washington, d.c. all recognize same-sex marriage now. that doesn't seem like many, but it's happening quickly. three of those states people voted to legal marriage in november. first time ever done so. there's a big public opinion trend here. since '04, polls have been asking people should it be legal or illegal for gay couples to get married. 59% of people said they thought it should be against the law. in 2012 it was almost the opposite. 53% favor making it legal. pew has been asking the question since 1996. when 65% of people were against same-sex marriage. by october of this year, 49% were for marriage equality while 40% opposed it. one more set of numbers. gallop released their polling this week. 53% of people polled support legalizing same-sex marriage. but look inside the poll. among young people 18 to 29-year-olds, 73% say they think same-sex marriage should
